Wetsuits are an important investment and its an expensive one too.
Here are some things to look for:-
- Comfort and fit
- Ease of getting off
- Extra features
Taking the above into account, here are some suggestions of some great first triathlon wetsuits:-
Zone3 Venture Wetsuit
Really good value for money, zip is a bit of pain and it’s not super flexible, but a great cheap first suit.
TYR Hurricane Wetsuit C1
Really good buoyancy, good flexibility, but it is quite thick and can be an issue to take on and off.
Running with a water bottle, can put you off-balance and ultimately lead to injuries.
I picked up this waistpack which is excellent. It holds my bottle, and has two pouches.
Now these bad boys, are spot on. They have 22.6g of carbohydrate and 30mg of caffeine to give you a boost of energy and additional mental focus when you need it most.
They have recently redesigned the gels so they are easier to open.
Cheap, tasty, caffeine kick and easy to use.
